Full-Day Tour (8 hours)
Meet your guide in central Buenos Aires, and start your Delta adventure by listening to a little history about the development and expansion of Buenos Aires through the years. With your guide, board the Mitre train, which will take you to the town of San Isidro, one of the wealthiest communities in greater Buenos Aires since 1871, when affluent families went into exile here to escape the yellow fever epidemic.
Walk around San Isidro for a bit to see the towns old quarter and its eponymous chapel, dating back to 1706 and known for its Gothic architecture, before boarding another train the Tren de la Costa (Train of the Coast) for the trip to Tigre, the gateway to the delta. When you arrive, follow your guide to the Puerto de Frutos, the port that connects life on the islands with the mainland. Its a lively and popular spot where youll have some time to take photos and walk around. You can also grab a bite to eat (own expense).
Next, hop on a boat for your cruise through the canals of the delta, one of the largest in the world. Discover how the inhabitants of the delta turned it from a swampy area into a developed region with grass paths and canals of fresh water. Pass yacht clubs, waterfront houses on stilts, a market, and the house and museum of former Argentina president Sarmiento, who encouraged people to make their homes here.
Your boat will then leave the delta, heading out onto the Rio de la Plata, one of the widest rivers in the world. Cruise along the Costanera Navigation Canal, parallel to the Buenos Aires shoreline, passing the River Plate Stadium, the University of Buenos Aires and the city's port and cruise terminal. Youll arrive at Puerto Madero, where you tour ends.
Half-Day Tour (3 hours)
Youll be picked up from your hotel in either the morning or afternoon (depending on option selected) or, if your hotel is out of the pickup area, meet your guide in central Buenos Aires. On board a comfortable coach, ride along Costanera Avenue, parallel to the Rio de la Plata, and head out of the city center to San Isidro.
See its cathedral and the many mansions inhabited by old aristocratic families before continuing on to Tigre. Here, board a catamaran for a 40-minute cruise through the delta. See how people live on the islands and interact with floating services: the supermarket boat, water taxi and more. See the homes built on stilts and President Sarmientos home/museum.
At the end of the boat ride, return to port to re-board your coach for the drive back to Buenos Aires, where you tour ends downtown at either 2pm or 5pm (approx.).
